So, recently, I’ve had a lot more time on my hands, so I’ve been reading more books. Whether it’s poetry, fiction, or historical, I have loved so many books, and I really wanted to share them with you guys! So here is a list of books I’m recommending for this summer.
1. Milk and Honey- Rupi Kaur
This poetry book by Rupi Kaur inspires so many emotions and deals with real life issues such as rejection, love, and relationships.
2. Bonjour Tristesse- Françoise Sagan
Bonjour Tristesse is a witty and light-hearted French story about a young girl, Cécile, and her summer romance and adventures!
3. Lolita- Vladamir Nabokov
A controversial literary work about an older man and his obsession with a young girl named Lolita. This book made me uncomfortable, but it was so intriguing that I just kept reading. Eventually, by the end, I understood that the level of controversy results in appreciation for the work.
4. Gone Girl- Gillian Flynn
A thriller novel about a woman who goes missing. This book is filled with deceit, mystery, and intrigue!
5. The Catcher In the Rye- J.D. Salinger
The Cather in the Rye is a classic novel, and I especially loved the themes of angst and adolescence.
